ServNet has announced the opening of its 2019 Scholarship Program, designed to help ServNet auction employees and their families pursue the dream of higher education. The ServNet Scholarship program assists full-time ServNet auction employees, their children, stepchildren and grandchildren who plan to pursue education in college or vocational school programs.
Up to 10 awards totaling $20,000 are available for aspiring undergraduate students in 2019. The awards will be given in increments of five awards of $2,500 to students attending a four-year college or university, and five awards of $1,500 for students attending a two-year college or are pursuing an auto-related degree at a vocational-technical school.
"ServNet has for many years lent its support to higher education for members of the auction industry," said Ryan Clark, owner of Greater Rockford Auto Auction and a member of ServNet's Board of Directors, overseeing the Scholarship Program. "ServNet's efforts were focused initially in support of the NAAA's Warren Young Scholarship Program in the early 2000's," said Clark. "But we decided as a group that we wanted to broaden our support for training and education by offering scholarships each year to the sons and daughters of employees of ServNet auctions, and launched our own program in 2016."
"As the leaders of of family-owned businesses ourselves, we ServNet owners take a deep personal interest in our employees," explained Clark. "ServNet's scholarship program is a great way for us to encourage the members of our auction families and to help lay the groundwork for the next generation that follows."
Clark notes that ServNet's scholarship program has been enthusiastically received by employees and associates at ServNet auctions around the country, and that several students have applied for â€“ and been awarded - the ServNet scholarship in multiple years.
"ServNet's Scholarship Program is both an important way to support the families who work so hard in our industry and and to invest in our collective future," Ryan added.
The application deadline for this year's Scholarship Awards is March 29, 2019 at 3pm Eastern Time. Additional information and application forms are available at www.servnetauctions.com.
